- Category: Planning
- 2020 Winner: Transoft Solutions, Inc.
- Project Name: AutoTURN Pro
Description: In 2019, Transoft Solutions Inc. undertook the challenge of developing software that accurately simulates the movement and turning of bicycles. The result, included in the latest version of AutoTURN Pro, is the first software tool of its kind that transportation planners and designers can easily use to check that road designs safely accommodate different types of cyclists.
As populations grow and cities become increasingly dense, transportation network needs become more complex. These days, planners are looking at ways to safely and sustainably move increased flows of people, vehicles and goods—including by non-motorized vehicles like bicycles. AutoTURN Pro’s bicycle simulation tool allows engineers and designers to reduce guesswork and design errors as they incorporate Complete Streets Policies that include bicycles into their transportation network design and/or redesign.
The tool was built using field test results and design guidelines from countries around the world. AutoTURN software has been used by the transportation industry for three decades, and its new bicycle swept-path analysis tool demonstrates Transoft’s ongoing commitment to producing innovative software that is aligned with safety, sustainability and the latest design trends to support the transportation sector.
